Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Normanidaho Blue spool vs. green spool
When I purchased my Ryobi trimmer it had the blue line string so when I ran out I went to Home Depot to purchase the 3 pack of blue line. I have had multiple problems with these spools. The line wont auto feed like its suppose too. It slows down my progress when I have to stop and flip the trimmer over to pull more line off. So I went back to home depot and found the light green colored spools with the fluorescent green string. It was like night and day with the green string. The auto feed is back and the line actually cut better with the twisted string style. I lined up the 2 different spools and I wish I had kept the original spool from the trimmer. The spools were different. The both spools are identical on the side that would face up when you install it. However the sprocket's or teeth were different. The blue spool had 15 teeth and the green spool had only 7 and I think this is the reason to make the trimmer auto feed the line.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sash 3 years of use
I have used this with my Ryobi String trimmer under rough conditions for three seasons and been reasonably pleased. It is easy to use and, in heavy weeds and light brush, one spool lasts through about 3 charges of the Ryobi battery. One charge lasts me about 40 minutes of continuous use. I do wish the trimmer itself had been designed to take a spool with a longer length of line.
But beware that, under extremely hot conditions, the line may fuse inside the spool. The line can be separated by opening the spool but will re-fuse if you don't let the entire unit cool down. Sometimes it is necessary to discard the section of the line that was fused.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by StuR Beats WORX
We use Ryobi tools so we might have an advantage. I now have four string trimmers in the shed. The Toro and the Black and Decker are both good trimmers but I have to get out 100' of power cord every week. The WORX cordless trimmer was good when I bought it but they do not now, and never have, made a replacement battery so I have to recharge the one I have to get finished.
I think we have around six Lithium-Ion batteries for various Ryobi drills, saws etc. also have several old Ni-Cad batteries. They are all interchangeable and work in all of the tools. The Li-Ion are quick to charge, slow to discharge, indicate the state of charge, can be left in the charger and only weigh about half of the old Ni-Cad batteries. Not saying Ryobi are the best tools but I no longer have half a dozen batteries sitting around that don't interchange with any other tool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nora RYOBI 3 pack Line & Spool. Love it
I bought the entire system a few yrs ago, and loved the idea of no wires. The machine works well and the weed wacker battery lasts maybe 25 mins, but when that goes I take a break. I bought the 3 pack for the string and I love it. Sometimes it does have to be reset but not often. I have had no real issues with this except the price, which I am sure they can lower a bit....! I used to rewind my trimmers but I hated every min of it. This is easy especially when you just want to get out do your thing, and have it over and done with. So YES I love it

This line is too thin or of poor quality. Stick with the gas powered models, or one with thicker line. You need to buy the triple pack because you will go through it so fast. I do not recommend.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jscott004 Not as advertised
The string does not auto-advance as easily as the description makes it sound. It also breaks FAR too often, especially when trying to use the edging feature of the trimmer. Just yesterday I tried edging and finished about 20 feet and about 12 times I had to stop and fix the string because it kept breaking even at the head.
